Although it's a small feature, it would be helpful

Twitter is testing out a new feature that lets users see how many times a tweet has been retweeted with a comment.

A product lead at Twitter confirmed that the social media giant is testing the feature after a user posted a screenshot of it. Some users are seeing a new “Retweet with comments” list next to the “Likes” and “Retweets” numbers.

Twitter told The Verge that it is testing the feature with a small number of iOS users.

Although users can currently see how many times a tweet has been retweeted with a quote through Twitter’s search function, this new feature would make it easier to do so. It’ll also help users get a better understanding about how their tweets spread on the platform.

It’s important to note that Twitter is known for testing a lot of interesting features that never quite make it to a public release. Because of this, it’s unknown if this one will become an actual feature in the future.
